Questions about contracts

  1. I have been accepted into VCU's CRNA program. I am attempting to get funding from my current facility to assist with living expenses and tuition, total 57,000. How hard is it to get a contract? Does anyone have any suggestions or words of advice. :uhoh21:

    That would be one of the highest $ amounts I've heard of. From an employer's standpoint, that would be a big chunk to give someone up front, or even at the rate of a couple thousand $ a month, without some pretty significant contractual obligations.

    Had you discussed this with your current employer prior to applying? We've had a few nurses at our hospital come chat with us ahead of time about what assistance might be available, but I don't think anyone has come to us with a $ amount in mind.

    Congrats on getting accepted - hope you work out the financial end.

    I have had a meeting with the director of human resourses and the CEO. Basically, the money covers the tuition and housing. It is a grand total for the entire program. I know that currently the hospital is sponsoring another SRNA and his tuition alone (out of state) is 14,000 per semester. I would be willing to sign a long contract. I am just trying to find the most feasible option. I am the only contributor to my financial situtation. I am just trying to survive.
